This book develops an innovative Irish-Scottish postcolonial approach by galvanizing Emmanuel Levinas'' ethics with the socio-cultural category of the ''subaltern''. It sheds new light on contemporary Scottish and Irish fiction, exploring how these writings interact with the recent restructuring of the three state-formations in Ireland and Scotland.
